Dates and Sesame go-go balls



Looking for a guilt free dessert? Then you have landed in right spaceJ
I badly needed to empty the bottle in which I had put the sesame seeds as I needed that cute little bottle to fill in the Plum Chutney
And out of the necessity of the sesame bottle, I invented this simple recipe!!
I wanted to make the traditional ellu undai/laddus…But after a quick chat with Mom, it seemed like a tedious process.
Also a huge luck factor is involved as we have to get the Sugar syrup to exact right consistency else you will really really mess up !
Thatz when I saw the box of Juicy dates laying in table…Now that would make an excellent binder!! And rest is history recipe 


Dates and Sesame go-go balls
Ingredients
100 gms White Sesame seeds
10 Mejdool Dates
1-2 tbspn Brown Sugar/Maple Syrup or Honey


Directions
Dry roast the sesame seeds on low flame for 3-5 minutes until its lightly browned and fragrant
In a food processor, process the Sesame seeds ,dates and a spoonful of sugar/syrup
Mix well until all come together. If the mix is too crumbly ,add in a little more honey/syrup
Shape to balls and refrigerate for a while so that the balls will hold the shape and does not crumble.
